  • The grounds and buildings are at first unassuming. We thought we had arrived at the wrong place. Since it was a weekday in November there were few tourists. We opted for the (very affordable) tour aft...  more »
  • Same area as River Rose paddle boat.....very informative when you take the tour. The 18th century stone house is where General George Washington brought the Revolutionary War to close.  more »
  • The guided tour is a must to get into the George Washington's house and see how our first president was living at the time. Very interesting if you are a historic buff.  more »

  • why do i give this site 5 stars not only its one of Washington's Headquarters. he stayed here the longest out of all his headquarters but thats not the only reason. if George Washington was to walk into today. he would recognize it. it is the same right down to the paint as he left it. how incredible is that. also in the site is and super museum and the Tower of Victory. in 1887 to commemorate the peace following the end of the Revolutionary War. i even loved the tulip tree.
  • Great place with a lot of history! Museum shows many period pieces ranging from military to every day items. Washington’s house is outstanding to see something from the from 1750 to 1770 still here today.
  • An exceptionally well maintained historic structure. What beautiful scenery. It was like a walk back in time and the work being done to preserve it is amazing. It needs more contributions and is worthy of so much more.
  • A hidden treasure of local and national history-- the museum includes the original building used by President (then General) George Washington to command the Continental Army during the last 16 months of the war. There are period displays in the headquarters and hands on replica artifacts that can be handled. There is also a larger museum space where more artifacts related to the Revolutionary War are kept. Please be aware photography is not allowed in the museums. The grounds are beautiful and the view is very nice.
  • I love the Hasbrouck house and it's jambless fireplace. The reenactors are beautifully dressed and great interpreters. Beautiful view of the Hudson River.
